Very VERY helpful! Mar 12, 2008
I bought this book for my "tween", but I've ended up keeping it for myself! (Don't worry, I'll get the kids their own copy)
The language of this version of The Holy Bible makes it so much easier to follow the stories and lessons contained within. Honestly, how many people can say they have read The Bible cover-to-cover? Out of those who have, how many understand it? With this version, I will not only complete reading The Bible cover-to-cover, I will also have a better understanding of the Word of God.
IMHO, God wants The Bible to be a means of communication...if reading this Bible helps an adult understand God's Word better, I'm sure God is OK with that. I am a reader(lector) at my parish and there are often times when I study a reading the night before I'm to read it aloud at Sunday Mass and cannot quite comprehend what is being conveyed. Having this Bible for reference helps me tremendously.
So get it not only for your tweens...get it for your own understanding of The Bible as well.
Excellent really does "breakthrough" to Catholic Youth Jan 29, 2008
This bible is excellently written and has a lot of prayers, articles, study tools, and lots of stuff. Great gift, Fun to Read.
Excellent Oct 13, 2007
The books arrived in excellent condition. I was proud to distribute them. I especially appreciated that they were packaged in plastic.
Break Through Good News Sep 14, 2007
I have been waiting for this Bible to come out for years! It is wonderful! Just as the title says, it is "break through". It is written in a language anyone can understand, even a child. I am using it for teens and the little additions explaining things such as "Catholic Connections", "Pray it", "Live it" and the short summaries are tremendous! It really makes Scripture easy to understand.
Great for Catholic Children Aug 6, 2007
I'm planning on using this Bible for my 5th grade level CCD/PSR class and for the children in RCIC...very readable and easy to understand for the children, and is written in 'todays' language, which definately helps in getting the point across to the children. This Bible, is also great for adults who may have forgotten some of the Bible stories, people of the Bible and the Saints. A great resource for Catholic families with young children, you can use some of the stories for bedtime!
